To celebrate fifty releases on No-Source Netlabel, we've compiled a new compilation consisting on No-Source artists, exclusive tracks, and upcoming bands from the net scene. "Another Day, Another Way" really shows off the sound that is No-Source, with quieter, acoustic driven music, and a good dose of electronics. The compilation kicks off with Multi-Panel's "Christmas with Mr. Rice." This is no holiday song though with washed out acoustics and electronics stuck in a reverb...

Perfect electro-pop for a bright hot day. Enter Barcelona-based producer Cocolixe with the Futuro EP. This short four song EP is full of summery sounds and chilled dance beats.

It's great to welcome back Tardiss to No-Source with their brand new album, "Thisistar." This album picks up where "Blue" left off, further refining their sound into something that full bridges lo-fi indietronic and hi-fi IDM. The album kicks off with the over nine minute sprawling epic "Willbury Road." Downtempo beats are the center stage for this album. Long rhythmic grooves intersect with short interludes before fading out in the last few minutes of the album...

This split release features two short EPs by two up and coming musicians. Both releases are wonderful and work well on their own just as they fit together as one. boletes is Roy Gornall of Scotland. boletes' Hunnibug EP floats and crescendos through four tracks of ambient folk. His music conjures a Red House Painters style of other-worldly folk music. Roy captivates the listener in his world with soft guitars, electronic spacial reflections, and soft lyrics of mysticism. The solemn tunes could...

In 2011, No-Source Netlabel kicked off a remix contest for Will Bang's album Stay Gold. As you may remember, Stay Gold was created as a starting point for musical collaboration. Now that the initial contest is over, No-Source brings to you the remix EP "Stay Golden". The EP contains five tracks, remixing four of the songs off Stay Gold. These five tracks come across less as remixes and more as a compilation of songs by different artists. Interestingly enough all five tracks share a...

Majka Is Board is Robert McAdam of Scotland. TinyBrightStatic may be Robert's first effort under this moniker but his years of musical experience easily show through. Four lovely instrumental electro-pop tunes have been crafted for your listening pleasure; ambient , progressive, and dance - equal parts fun, retro, and chill. The title track kicks it off with a catchy melody. You'll swear that vocals are going to kick in at any moment but Majka keep it purely instrumental. 16bitDisco is an ode...

B for Brontosaurus is everything there is to love in the world of indie pop. Quirky waves of lyrics interweaving with with non-traditional instrumentation transport you back in time to a different age. Every song dabbles in harmonies while the trio trade in their guitar and bass for the occasional synth, piano or harmonica. For those familiar with B for Brontosaurus' debut full length, expect a mellow listen with the Home EP. This is their quiet farewell to the world after breaking up in 2008....

Experimental lo-fi synth pop. Apsis Lappet is the solo project of Texas native Nate Kitchens. His music is as catchy as it is non-conventional. Listening to Apsis Lappet's debut, Suite Happy Sweet, I'm hit with waves of nostalgia. These songs are the songs created inside of my daydreams as a child. Kitchens manages to recall every note as he writes the aged lyrics and crafts this EP. Spidermunkey recalls a synth punk inner city attitude while Happier Day and Mellow remind me of early Magnetic...

A year and many remixes later, a companion album, "Eyes Wide & Empty Hats" enters. This album carries on the toytronic atmosphere with seven songs from the same recording session that produced the The Lantern, The Ghost, and The Sea as well as seven favorable remixes by new artists and No-Source...

Fukkitol's new EP "Two", is a whirlwind of ideas, emotions, and sounds all collage together into five pieces of experimental electro-acoustic IDM. The first track "jobb Ingen" could be mistaken as something by AFX while the second track travels from quiet piano to elctro-prog rock, to some sort of low key Aphex Twin piece. Tracks three and five remind me of some of Four Tet's more experimental work. The combination of manic processing and melodic acoustics really challenges...

Apsis Lappet returns with a new release and quieter, darker batch of tunes. These are the twists, the turns, the back roads of your life. Three synth infused instrumentals act as bookends for Nate's own brand of Lo-fi pop. You can feel Nate channeling acts like Bright Eyes and early Why? on songs like Bubble Wrap and Alco Tea. Journey through the Back Roads with us.

Birds is a new single from Russian composer Alex Tiuniaev. The track effortlessly combines post-classical sensibilities with instrumental, electronic, pop. It's good to see Alex tackle other genres as he's most well known for his ambient and post classical works. Birds is a playful piece. Melodic synths and drum machines dance along side bright, polish sound design. The b-side is a scratchy, downtempo remix by Ford Madox Ford who introduces an effects laden vocal loop into the re-imagined track.

The Kalimba is a percussion instrument from Africa, sometimes called a thumb piano. It is also the basis for Tim Dwyer's latest album as Full-Source. Its soft metallic tones resonate throughout 10 of the 13 songs, winding in and out of the glockenspiels, synths, beats and other assorted instruments that form the backing track to lyrics exploring themes relating to the metaphorical lantern, ghost and sea of the title. Losing all past traces of high concept space operas and gritty synthpop, 'The...

Guy Honeymoon of Sheffield UK brings us nine songs of life, love, and getting through the day. Guy sticks to the basics with stripped down guy-and-guitar pop songs. The bells and whistles would just get in the way. The lyrics and vocal melody is the meat of Guy's work and the element that will immediately draw you into his music. This is the voice of a traveler, and a sincere one at that. Amelia, Hollow Hearts and Pocketknife were recorded with Andy Miller (Mogwai, Arab Strap, Scout Niblet) at...

In that year they produced only one EP. No-Source is pleased to be able to share this archived work with you. The music is experimental and lo-fi in composition and sound. Electronica, ambient, post rock, noise influence throughout. Melody and noise compete throughout. There is definitely some similarities between Proiekt Massage...

Someday and Shine is the solo project of Galih Kharisma Putra from Indonesia. "Random," recorded in 2010, encompasses themes of loss, separation, and loneliness. Galih writes lyrics around acoustic guitar and lo-fi minimalism. The first track, Hilang, starts off the album with field recordings, effects-laden guitar lines, and lo-fi vocal crackle. Sendiri Padam is mournful, effect-drenched vocals paired with simple low-frequency guitar lines and midrange plucking. The third track,...

[MotNiM] (short for Mystery of the Ninth Morning) is a new EP of music by dmyra. At only three songs, these are some of dmyra's longest and deepest tracks to date. As the album and track titles suggest, this musical work is shrouded in mystery. Each minute is just as cryptic as the last. The final track, a complete epic, will still leave you wanting more. More music and more answers. dmyra told me that "interpretation is everything." Perhaps that is the key to the meanings within....

Farewell These Unknown Suns is the final Full-Source album. These twelve songs close the book on the last thirteen years of musical experimentation in the realm of electronic pop music. Collected are elements from all styles of Full-Source over the years. The finished creative output is an album that is unique and (for the first time) very much sounding like Full-Source. The sun sets, we look to the stars. Perhaps a hint of where Tim Dwyer of Full-Source will lead us next.
